Theater Heute

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Theater Heute

From the journal website:

“Theater heute ist seit seiner Entstehung zur Instanz für die kritische Begleitung des deutschsprachigen Theaters geworden. Gegründet wurde die Zeitschrift im Sommer 1960 von Erhard Friedrich und Henning Rischbieter.

“Zusammen mit dem späteren Dramaturgen und Regisseur Ernst Wendt entwickelte Rischbieter eine Zeitschrift, die über die feuilletonistische Tageskritik weit hinausging. Dabei beobachtete Theater heute von Anfang an nicht nur das Geschehen auf den Bühnen im deutschsprachigen Raum – einschließlich der DDR – , sondern auch international.

“Neben Rezensionen trat die Reflexion übergreifender Zusammenhänge und Tendenzen im zeitgenössischen Schauspiel. Ein besonderer Schwerpunkt lag auf neuer Dramatik; jeden Monat wurde und wird ein neues Stück vollständig abgedruckt – eine Enzyklopädie der dramatischen Weltliteratur. Seit Mitte der sechziger Jahre ermittelt die Redaktion alljährlich in einer Kritiker-Umfrage das Theater, das Stück, den Regisseur sowie die Schauspieler und Nachwuchsdarsteller des Jahres – diese im Jahrbuch veröffentlichte Wahl zählt bis heute zu den meistbeachteten Auszeichnungen in der deutschsprachigen Theaterszene.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from 2004 to present.

Early European Books (15 collections(complete)) : access until 31st May 2020

Our access to the Early European Books collections has been extended to include all 15 collections until 31st May 2020.

Please send any feedback you have about the Early European Books collections to us via the online form.

Early European Books provides scholars with new ways of accessing and exploring all works printed in Europe before 1701, drawing together a diverse array of printed sources which also includes a number of items printed further afield. Developed and produced in close collaboration with scholars, rare book librarians, bibliographers, and other experts from the library world, this resource opens the door to some of the world’s most significant holdings of early printed books.

All works printed in Europe before 1701, regardless of language, fall within the scope of the project, as do all pre-1701 works in European languages printed elsewhere. Early European Books builds upon and complements Early English Books Online (EEBO) and is largely concerned with non-Anglophone materials. Books in English or printed in the English-speaking world that are already represented in EEBO are nevertheless included in Early European Books where they form an integral element of library holdings made available for digital capture.

Early European Books offers full-colour, high-resolution (400 ppi) facsimile images scanned directly from the original printed sources. Each item in the collection is captured in its entirety, complete with its binding, edges, endpapers, blank pages, and any loose inserts, providing scholars with a wealth of information about the physical characteristics and provenance histories of the original artefacts.

Detailed descriptive bibliographic metadata accompanies each set of facsimile Document Images to support browsing and searching. Users of Early European Books are also provided with functionality that allows them to pinpoint particular images containing manuscript annotation and various kinds of non-textual printed matter including illustrations and maps.

Thus the journal covers a broad spectrum without being exclusive. It accepts contributions in French as well as in English, German and Italian. Moreover, it is the only international journal published in the French language on the subject of Ancient Judaism that is characterized by historical and philological approaches to the material.”
